ok..saw a recent picture of me and though I have always been vigilant about using sun screen on my face and seem to have very little obvious signs of aging there…my hands look like they belong to “wicked witch’..yikes…any suggestions on what I can do other than to wear gloves year round?

    Here is a great trick. Look at your hands with love. Enjoy the fact they have enjoyed many days of sun, water and earth. Think about all they have done for you throughout your life. Love your hands just the way they are. They are unique to you and your life. Be proud of them!

    Your smile has helped you keep aging at bay, along with product, as it takes more muscles to frown than smile! I use Avon ANEW Solar Advance Sunscreen SPF 45 Face Lotion and Sunscreen SPF 30 Body Lotion. These products are designed to repair; not just protect and are very water resistant. Solar Advance has received the Active Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation. http://www.youravon/acressy

    Hi Jane,

    Yes, as we age the skin on our hand thins out, the veins begin to show a lot more & the suppleness is depleted.

    Here are my recommendations to beautify your hands:
    1) Keep them moisturized on a daily basis. Bring a small size in your purse so you can continue to moisturize throughout the day. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is for severely dry active hands. I use this product mostly during the winter months but it works during the summer especially if the sun burnt your hands. http://www.kiehls.com
    2) Make sure you wear daily at least 30 SPF on your hands over the moisturizing lotion to protect from further sun damage.
    3) Keep your manicures up on a weekly basis as pretty nails distracts from aging hands.
    4) You can wear foundation on the top part of your hands or Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage that will cover the veins, sunspots & give a healthy glow to your hands. On photo shoots, makeup artists will use these products on me when my hands will be photographed. I realize that when you wash your hands the make-up can come off, but try to be conscious & let the water run on the inside of your hands only. This is a great trick if you have a special event to attend or family photos. Bloomingdale’s & Neiman Marcus have Laura Mercier.
    5) Use self tanner on your hands for a more permanent option rather than make-up.
    6) Visit your dermatologist as they have laser machines that can do wonders on the hands.

      Thanks Susan! I am going to give some of these suggestions a try! I never thought I would be self concious about my hands…my thighs maybe,but not my hands!!LoL

    As said before, sun screen works very well on the hands, and you should be as diligent about your hands and any other exposed part of your body as you are your face.
    The one solution I have found to be effective for myself is microdermabrasion. I have been very successful with many of my clients using this to erase the unwanted hyperpigmentation.
    Another solution is the red LED light. It works very well, giving visible results after five 20-minute sessions.
    Hope this helps.

    I have started using Roc night cream on my hands because it seems to help and the tub I have seems to strong for my face so instead of wasting it I thought it would be OK for my hands but I only use it on the tops not the palm

      ok…that sounds like it is worth a try! thank!

    Of course always wearing sunscreen on your hands for preventing future damage, is a must. But, to get them looking better you can have laser treatments to remove any brown spots and there are some injectibles if you want to go that route, that will plump them up. But, whatever you are doing on your face and neck should be done to the backs of your hands too. Such as, when you exfoliate twice a week on your face and neck be sure to include the back side of your hands and any face creams and treatments you use on your face, use them on the back of your hands – especially at night time.
